The Chimney Swift
5 minutes / Germany / 2020 / 2D
19th century in Europe. A child climbs up a chimney while a bird sails down into it to build a nest. An encounter with no way back.
A British chimney sweeper describes his everyday routine of forcing young kids to become workers. While we observe a kid cleaning a chimney, the master’s statement gets more personal with every sentence until we understand, that he is speaking about his own past
